Strawberry Ramos Gin Fizz

Strawberry Ramos Gin Fizz

An iconic drink from the 1880s, the original Ramos Gin Fizz recipe instructed the bartender to shake the cocktail for 12 minutes.  A good 30 seconds each way is enough for government work.  A little strawberry syrup makes this an especially springy take. 


  • 2 oz London dry gin
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 2 oz J.T. Copper Strawberry-Peppercorn Syrup
  • 1 oz heavy cream
  • 4 drops rosewater
  • 1 egg white
  • Soda water, as needed
  • Mint sprig and a strawberry, as garnishes


  1. Combine the gin, lemon juice, lime juice, syrup, heavy cream, rosewater, and egg white in a shaker without ice.  Shake for 30 seconds.  
  2. Add ice to shaker and shake for another 30 seconds. Strain into a tall, chilled glass (a Collins glass words well) and top up with soda.  A fine foam should float to the top with the addition of the soda. 
  3. Garnish with the mint and strawberry.  Serve at once.
